Key Features

  • Detection range up to 165 m (541 ft.)
  • Various beam options for optimized field of view
  • Rapid data acquisition rate of up to 100 Hz
  • Proven reliability both indoors and outdoors
  • Immune to ambient light variations
  • Outstanding robustness, with no moving parts


Thanks to its high-precision detection capabilities, the Leddar M16 can locate obstacles such as fixed structures, vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. This makes it the LiDAR of choice for mobility applications where off-the-shelf sensor modules are required.

Autonomous Shuttles

  • Collision avoidance
  • Blind spot coverage
  • Redundancy system for navigation

ITS - Intelligent Transportation Systems

  • Traffic detection
  • Vehicle profiling
  • Smart city data
  • Velocity measurement

Trucks and Buses

  • Vehicle automation
  • Collision avoidance

Choosing your Configuration

The M16 modules are available in two main configuration types, based on illumination methods: the classic LED family and the new Laser family. Both M16 families are perfectly suited to outdoor operation: solid-state design with no motorized mechanisms, wide operating temperature ranges, all-weather performance and immunity to lighting variations.

M16-LSR: For Those Seeking Extended Range

NEW PRODUCT- The new M16-LSR uses a laser source to achieve even longer ranges and to provide narrower and better-defined vertical FOV, —all in a smaller form factor than the M16-LED.

M16-LED: The Proven Leddar Workhorse

The M16-LED is the proven Leddar workhorse that our clients have come to value for its versatility and reliability. This module’s infrared LED light source provides wide-beam illumination at ranges up to 100 m and is offered in six different field-of-view configurations.
